    Yes, it may be 18 years since Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Monica, Phoebe and Joey last performed, but it feels like only yesterday and we’re still talking about it.

    Last week, it was Jennifer Aniston and her ex-boyfriend/former co-star Tate Donovan that made headlines when a sweet anecdote resurfaced in which Donovan bought his then-girlfriend a 9-week-old puppy for Valentine’s Day in 1996 and walked him into Jen’s dressing room as a surprise.

    Donovan famously guest-starred in friendsShe plays Rachel’s love interest, Joshua Burgin – or “Josh-ua” too seriously friends fans.

    But while many thought the couple met on the set of the iconic sitcom, it turns out they actually dated years ago — even got engaged in 1998, and according to Donovan, the couple actually split during his guest appearance on the show.

    “The people who know we were together think we met Friends,‘ Donovan explained Us weekly. “Actually we were together two years before that and by the time we started it was over friends together.”

    Though he admits he was skeptical about taking on the cameo, he explained that he thought it would be “good to process this breakup,” but he’s since spoken out about his experience and how it was a lot sadder than it was he had foreseen.

    “I was just happy to be on the team,” he explained of his friends Looks. “The only bummer was that Jennifer and I broke up at the time. And so it was difficult to pretend that we’re just going to meet and fall in love or whatever, be interested in each other when we sort of break up. That was just tough.”

    He continued, “It was only six episodes. I mean, just because we broke up. We were like, ‘Hey, can’t we keep doing this? Because it’s really painful and hard.’”

    In conversation with HuffPost Live, He continued: “It was awful. it was so hard I remember going back to my dressing room and just crying.”

    We don’t know how they did it.
